".... great is thy faithfulness." Lamentations 3:23b
As you all know I haven't sent out the devotional in almost two weeks. One of the last ones I sent out dealt with eventful days. We never know when a day begins how it will end. Well, the reason I have not been sending out a devotional is because we had an eventful day that has lead to many eventful days.
My husband had a stress test which revealed that he had some blockage in an artery. So a heart catheterization was scheduled for him. His cardiologist thought it was going to be an easy fix. When they did the catheterization, they discovered that it was not an easy fix. He had three blocked arteries which would require open heart surgery. He was admitted immediately into the hospital to await surgery. Two days later the doctors performed a triple bypass on him. One artery was 100% blocked, another one was 98% blocked and the third one was 95% blocked. The surgery went well and he is back at home recovering. His recovery is a process but the same God who was with him and kept him from having a heart attack and who was with him during the surgery will be with him as he recovers.
When we go through trying times, the Lord is with us through the entire situation. He is there at the beginning and at the end. He doesn't leave in the middle of what you are going through. He doesn't leave you before it is finished. He stays with you through it all. He is a friend who sticks closer than a brother. He is the Alpha and Omega, the Beginning and the End, the First and the Last, the Author and Finisher. He walks with you through the valley, up the mountain, in the fire, on the storm, in the wilderness, wherever it is you are walking, He walks there with you and stays with you until it is over.
Have a great day. The Lord is faithful to walk with you no matter where you find yourself, and He will walk with you all the way to the end.
